Fresh & clean: 5 expert tips that make your beauty routine more hygienic

 


Due to the current situation,, we should pay even more attention to hygiene than we already do. With these tips,, you can make your beauty routine more hygienic.

We have probably never thought so much about washing our hands, disinfecting,, or touching our face. Nevertheless, it is not wrong to pay attention to hygiene anyway - especially during the daily beauty routine. These five tips are guaranteed to help you:

Wash your hands

We all know: Before we cream our face and body or apply foundation with our hands, we should definitely wash them. Especially up-to-date. This prevents bacteria and dirt from being transferred from the fingers to the skin. Washing for at least 20 seconds is mandatory!

No rings and earrings

Also at our beloved jewelry accumulates a lot of dirt. Also make-up remains for example stick stubbornly to the parts. That's why you should deliberately put on rings and earrings at the very end (or not at all). Then honestly, how often do you clean your jewelry? Probably not that often. Maybe it's about time to do it again ...


Due to the current situation, you should avoid jewelry altogether at the moment, dermatologist Dr. Mona Gohara advises in an interview with INSTYLE.com. Studies have shown that the corona virus can survive up to four hours on copper and up to three days on stainless steel.

Short fingernails

You have finally managed to let your nails grow long? Bad news ... Under long fingernails, germs quickly settle down. That's why we currently prefer to make short work and cut the nails as short as possible. The best way to clean your nails is to "scratch" the inside of your palms while you lather the soap. "This ensures that the soap cleans under the nails," explains Dr. Mona Gohara. 

Tie hair together

Tying the hair into a braid probably sounds very obvious to many, but not everyone does it. Our hair is very close to our mouth and nose - a plait prevents viruses from being transmitted from the hair via the mucous membranes. In addition, one should refrain from using dry shampoo, mousse, etc., as viruses could "cling" to them better, as Dr. Mona Gohara explains. So: Better to walk around with greasy hair than to use dry shampoo every day ...

Cleaning Tools

Last but not least: Our make-up brushes and sponges are also susceptible to bacteria. So make sure you clean them regularly - if not daily. Or you simply don't apply make-up at all. It can't hurt to give your skin a break.
